Electric Radiators Direct

Welcome to Electric Radiators Direct, suppliers of energy efficient electric radiators and towel rails. We champion electric heating as the heating solution of the future because it is carbon free, ideal for use with sustainable energy and perfectly adapted to take advantage of SMART electronic technology. Once upon a time, electric heating was limited to rudimentary storage heaters designed to save money by heating up overnight using cheap rate electricity and releasing heat during the day. Inefficient, bulky, and difficult to control, storage heaters are rarely popular in homes today. However, not all homeowners realise that electric heating has evolved in recent decades, and now electric radiators offer an easy-install, maintenance free heating option with running costs to rival gas central heating.

Electric radiators are a fantastic forward-looking heating solution because they run equally well whether your electricity is generated by burning fossil fuels or by harnessing sustainable resources. As fossil fuels become scarcer and renewable energy increasingly dominates the energy sector, electric radiators provide an adaptable heating option than keeps up with the changing times.

The company was founded in 2013 to meet the rising demand for energy efficient electric radiators at affordable prices. Since then we have been committed to making comfortable heating with a low carbon footprint an affordable option for all households and businesses, whatever the budget.

When you shop at Electric Radiators Direct you will find a comprehensive range of products with something for every property, design scheme and budget. Our website is packed full of useful information, and, if you’re still unsure, our friendly team of heating advisors are only a phone call away. At Electric Radiators Direct we’re proud to offer exceptional customer service with an award-winning team here to help you before, during and after your purchase. We also offer free next day delivery on most items and a 30 day money back guarantee and best price promise on all our products.

  1. How many electric radiators do I need for my home?

    1
    1. The number of radiators required for adequate heating depends on a number of variables within your home. From the size of your room to the level of insulation, these things all have an impact on the number of electric radiators you will need to provide heat in your home. Choosing an electric radiator with the correct wattage is key to achieving your desired coverage. Wattage is a measurement of electrical power and all electric items have a wattage output. For electric heating, the best approach is to combine several radiators together to effectively heat a room. This way, your electric radiators won’t have to operate at maximum capacity to achieve warmth. This can help sustain the life of your product and avoid expensive energy bills.

      To determine how many electric radiators you need to heat your space, you can use our helpful wattage calculator. This calculator takes into consideration factors like room dimensions and insulation and provides you with a total wattage needed to heat that room. You can then purchase radiators that meet and exceed that total wattage to know that you will be providing enough power for adequate heating. If you need any more assistance when considering how many radiators to use in your home, one of our dedicated sales advisors is always on hand to provide additional help.

  2. Can I DIY install my black electric radiator?

    1
    1. Many of our electric radiators are suitable for DIY installation and can be installed with the bare minimum of DIY knowledge. For many of our products, a few holes for the mounting brackets and a few screws for the radiator is all that’s needed.

      Whilst many of our products are suitable for DIY installation, for specific installation information please refer to the individual product pages. When DIY installing is not an option, a certified electrician will have no trouble installing your electric radiator and can provide a hardwire finish for a tidier fit.

  3. Are designer radiators less efficient than models with more conventional designs?

    1
    1. Our range of designer electric radiators are manufactured with high quality components by respected brands. Designer or non-designer, our electric radiator products are all efficient, effective, and sure to fulfil your heating needs. For specific information about a product, be sure to check out the relevant product page. If you need any more assistance, one of our dedicated sales team are on hand to take any queries and to provide friendly advice.

  4. How many electric radiators do I need for my home?

    1
    1. The number of radiators you require for your home depends on the size of the room you want to heat. Choosing radiators with enough wattage is key to providing efficient heat. To determine the total wattage needed to heat your space, you can use our wattage calculator. This takes into consideration your room’s dimensions, level of insulation, and several other factors to determine how much power you need from your radiators.

      Using a single radiator with a higher wattage isn’t necessarily the best way to effectively heat a room. Heating in this way can force your radiator to constantly operate at its maximum output, which can incur costly running costs. Using a single high wattage radiator to heat a room doesn’t guarantee that it will manage to heat the whole area and you may find that it fails to provide adequate heat. Choosing a combination of lower wattage electric radiators that accumulatively reach your desired wattage target can alleviate this problem.

      If you require any further assistance, a member of our friendly sales team will be happy to help and talk through your options with you.

  5. Can I install my electric radiator DIY?

    1
    1. Many of our electric radiators are suitable for DIY installation and can be installed with the most basic of DIY knowledge. A few small holes for a mounting bracket and a few screws to secure your radiator in place is all that’s needed. Some of our products can also be purchased with feet if you’d prefer a freestanding option.

      It is important to first check the individual product page for specific installation information to ensure DIY installation is suitable. If it is not suitable, a qualified electrician can hardwire the product for you. This is a simple job that shouldn’t require a lengthy call out time. All of our radiators are suitable for hardwiring, so you might want to consider this option if you prefer a tidier fit with all wires hidden.

      It is important to note that you should never use an electric radiator in your bathroom unless it has the relevant IP rating and is installed by a qualified electrician.

  6. Why choose a conservatory radiator?

    1
    1. Conservatories are notoriously tricky areas that conventional heating methods struggle to heat. The open space, glass windows and walls, and potentially high ceilings make traditional heaters a poor choice for efficient conservatory heating. Electric conservatory radiators, however, are designed with these challenges in mind and come in a range of wattages to help combat the heat loss from the glass walls. These higher wattages help the radiator to ‘push out’ warm air with more intensity than conventional radiators – warming your conservatory effectively and minimising heat loss where possible.

      Building regulations dictate that conservatories require a separate, controllable heating system from the rest of your household. Electric conservatory radiators conform to these requirements and have become increasingly popular because of this. Electric conservatory radiators can be DIY installed and bypass central heating systems entirely, making them quick and easy to set up.

      Electric conservatory radiators also come in shorter sizes that make them ideal for installation on conservatory dwarf walls where height is restricted. With just a few simple DIY skills, you can install and mount your conservatory radiator independently from the rest of your heating system and start enjoying your conservatory throughout the chillier months.

  7. How do you install conservatory radiators?

    1
    1. Electric conservatory radiators are easy to install and only require the most basic of DIY skills. The radiators can be fixed to the wall with a few screws and come with a standard 3-pin plug for quick and easy installation. If you’d prefer, a qualified electrician can hardwire your electric conservatory radiator into the wall for a smooth finish without any dangling cables.
